Augustine, a Mother's Son
Full Product Description
Dolina MacCuish has traced the influences on Augustine's life and tells the fascinating story of how an elitist philosopher, born into a well-to-do family in North Africa, familiar with the sophistication of Rome and Milan, was humbled to an acceptance of his childhood faith.Influenced by Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, and his mother, he rejected academic scepticism and started to turn back to God (shown by the famous incident in the garden whilst reading Romans 13:13f).
After the death of his mother he returned to North Africa where he was press-ganged into the ministry in 391, shortly later becoming Bishop of Hippo in 396. It was only after this that he came to a more biblical understanding of the Christian faith. He died in a besieged Hippo in 430 as Roman Africa succumbed to the Vandals.This is an exciting story of faithful witness overcoming the cynicism of the world.
